 This page is about "me, myself and I" (w) by unknown

 You might ask what you can find on this page? Well, there are several parts:
 This looks like ... Alfie!!! You can find what I do for a living... Furthermore, what I like and what I don't! What I use (software), and what I do in my spare time. What projects I am involved, and where you can find more useful or not so useful statements from me, or where you can find me personally (in the net, of course ;).
 So, watch out, read carefully, and don't take everything too seriously *smirks*!


This looks like ... Alfie!!!
 Well, at the moment there is just this one. I hope this is enough for the moment.
 This shot was taken at my first jump in Faliraki / Rhodos / Greece. It really was a great feeling! I'm quite sure that I will do it again, when I get the chance to...
[alfie]

What I do for a living...
 First of all I am a student at the Technical University of Vienna. I am kind of working there for The Project. We are offering Linux for the students in a dual-boot environment. If you want to see for what I am responsible then take a look at my page there. The Project is now outdated and superseded by the LiZ. It was a fun time working on it.
 Finally I am working as sysadmin for Wootsoft Entertainment.
 Enough work? ;/

What I like!
 This is just a short list for the start - it will be expanded (and explained in details) when I am in a better mood (so maybe never ;P):

music - jeans - roleplaying - concerts - t-shirts - cats - open minds - open source - free software - open hearts

What I don't like...
 Also here is just a first start for this list - I somehow have the impression that it will expand ;/ ... Anyway, here it goes: narrow minds - stubborn people - pseudo liberal people - propietary standards

What I use!
 Sorry, this part of the page has been moved to /software/, it will be removed completely here, soon.

What do I do in my spare time?
 Several things, if only I could find the time for it ;/:
  • Music: I listen to mostly anything - but simply take a look at the page (when it's ready, you fool *evilgrin*).
  • Concerts: I love to go to concerts. When you look at my music page you can get a clue about where you could find me. Especially the Forestglade Festival in Wiesen is a good place to find me, as the Donauinselfest is.
  • RPG's: Roleplaying Games. Most of the RPG's are situated in fantasy worlds, but I also played in cyberpunk realm, horror realm, etc ... All of these are combined in TORG, which is my best loved system (besides Earth Dawn, Midgard, Cthulhu and DSA).
  • MUD's: Multi User Dimension. RPG's in the internet. Some of which I tried out and liked (and even still play) are:
    • SilberLand: A german fantasy MUD that is running on a server at my university - so no lag at all (well, most of the time ;/). Nice and sweet.
    • DiscWorld: If it weren't for the lag - this MUD would be the only place I'd be. It's based on the novels by Terry Prattchet. It's really great! Even worth a try through lag ...
    • Midnight Sun: The first MUD I ever played... And I'm still sometimes there - just to not be deleted *smirks*
  • Linux: The OS of my choice. Most of my time I spend on Linux with configuring, helping others (see below), programming (see also below) and sometimes ;) also playing a little (xblast, xpilot, gnome-games).

The projects I assist:
 Here are the projects I am involved:
  • XBLAS@T: The X-Blast League of Austria (situated @ TU-Wien). Here there is a bunch of people that like that game and some of us (like me ;)) are taking part in the further development of it *proudofthat*
  • BBAA: The BloodBowl Association of Austria. I used to play BloodBowl but can't at the moment due to the lack of time... But I still try to keep the pages up to date (well, at least a little bit :/).
  • pcp: The Perl Cron-Poster. It is a short perl-program that I have written for the monthly at.linux FAQ posting. Feel free to use it and/or send any help you can offer.
  • sigd: The signature daemon. Another short perl-program I've written that makes ~/.signature (or any other file) a named pipe and gives you on every readout a different answer.
  • Debian: Yes, finally I'm an official Debian Maintainer. Take a look at my personal debian-pages.
 ... more to come. I have to do the pages before I can link them, you know? >;-)

Where to find my wise statements:
  • Different Newsgroups:
    • at.linux: This group I check very often and try to help the others to solve their problems (sometimes even I have some!!)
    • comp.mail.mutt: I still try to master that genious MUA.
    • news.software.readers: This newsgroup is about all the newsreaders around - and of course also about slrn. For I am still not that handy with scorefiles and s-lang macros I am lurking around there for useful information and even sometimes answer the one or the other question.
    • alt.ascii-art: At the moment I am again around there sometimes. I simply love those arts, also do a little myself.
  • Reflex: The Reflex Box has a linux-Forum which I also contribute to ...
  • Black Box: The Black Box also has a linux-Forum which I contribute to ...

Where to find me, to talk to or so?
 Well, best option at the moment is to try my ICQ UIN: 11783258.
 If that doesn't help you - you can give a look into the muds I play. If you really must know the characters I play you can ask me - but I won't list them here ;-P
 And finally, you can give the BBS' I have accounts on a try (but at the moment I am not very often there, so this chance is quite low):  Well, thats all for now. This will be changed if I notice any differences ;)
